akgranerGood Morning from PyCon :-)  after being here for only a day now I want to learn python15:39
akgranermaybe I do a developer side that wants to break out :-)15:40
akgranermhall119, what's a book to start with?15:40
mhall119akgraner: hmm, I didn't get a python book15:43
mhall119akgraner: do you have experience in another programming language?15:44

akgranermhall119, ummm no remember NTEU here ;-)15:44
mhall119yeah, an NTEU who want's to learn python, uh huh, I believe that15:45
mhall119akgraner: then personally, I'd suggest that you apt-get install laby15:45
mhall119it'll teach you basic programming constructs and introduce you to python's syntax15:45
mhall119best of all, it gives you a specific goal, without you needing an itch to scratch15:46
mhall119I got Michelle to do several levels of it a while back15:46

akgranerthat would so rock for UDS16:00
mhall119we're supposed to have a conference call with their developers sometime soon16:01
akgranerevan is using it to and he said the same thing "we need that at uds"16:01
